NY Through My Eyes - West Village, October 2018
I started my You Tube series "NY Through My Eyes". My goal is to explore the most interesting NY neighborhoods. I took off with the West Village. More (and better) to come. I'll be talking a...

“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Four
I continue my posts about Bronnie Ware’s “Five Top Regrets of the Dying”. I wrote about regret no. 5 here. The fourth regret is: „I wish I stayed in touch with my friend...

Color Factory - Wake Up Your Inner Child
The problem with NY is that we have too much of everything. There are so many events every day that sometimes - or most of the time - you just choose…to stay at home. And that’s exactly...

Your Opinion of Me Is None of My Business
Yeah, I know. The second you hear the sentence I chose for the title of this post, it sounds very cocky to you. It sounds like my self-esteem is sky-rocketing and my ego is bursting at the seams. Bu...

“The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Five
For some reason, I’ve kept seeing again the list of “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” poping up recently all the time. It’s a list created by Bronnie Ware, based on her best- ...

Step 61 - Forget About “Finding Your Passion”
I’ve already written in Just Like NY about “looking for a passion,” but I have a few new thoughts on the subject.  First of all, forget about this trend of “live yo...

Just Let Us Be the Woman We Want To Be
I was recently riding the subway and I looked around as I always do (unless I’m around my period and don’t want to look at anyone). I looked at women this time (it rarely happens, but th...

Breathwork with XPT
    I admire and follow many people on social media – always in search for an inspiration – and whenever I see some of them come to NY, I almost jump up to the sky at the pro...

Make Your Own Choice
I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I neve...

What’s the deal with meditation?
I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else, but here in the US, meditation has become very popular, to the point where companies hire teachers to give...

Give What You Get
A week ago, I got a text message from a guy I went on a date with… a year before. I didn’t expect to hear from him again (which is why I deleted his number), so I was pretty surprised.&...

How I Decided To Give Up This Beauty Race
It happens that I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Upper East Side recently, and must say one thing – there are a lot of fake faces out there. And it really annoys ...

Tipping


There are many ways to get a tip... I wrote recently that every price over here is increased by the sales tax, which often results in prices being higher than listed. Same goes for services. What I mean this time is tipping, which Polish people actually call „beer money”. Let me just say that over here, tips are welcome everywhere and in most places are treated as standard practice.

First Aid Kit


"My" chinese place, Brooklyn, October 2013 I don’t know why that is (laziness or simply convenience, if there’s even a difference between the two), but what I really like over here is the fact that every other block has the same set of establishments, which – combined – I like to call my „first aid kit”. In any given district, no matter how fat or t

So, Where Do You Live?


Manhattan, July2013 Guess what the most popular conversation topic is in New York (no matter if you talk to a friend or a stranger). Is it the weather…? Sure. Is it how one feels today…? That, too. Is it the place you live in…? BINGO! Where do you live? What subway station is that? How long is your commute? These questions are our daily bread. No one is surprised by hearing

An Incredible Theatrical Journey


I don’t have vast knowledge of theater, but I love seeing plays (even though I don’t do it often). Still, I knew that I absolutely needed to see a play I heard about for a long time now. It’s called „Sleep No More” and it’s a spectacle – or rather an interactive „experience” – devised by a British group Punchdrunk. Reviews told me that

Why Is America Different – Part II


The most popular eating out place Always Carry Your ID According to Polish law, you need to carry your ID at all times – however, not many people actually do. Here law is the same and everyone follows it. It’s very rarely that someone leaves their place with no ID. You better have it with you at all times. You should especially remember about it if you’re planning to have a n

SOMETHIN’ Jazz Club


Did you ever dream of a private jazz concert at your own place…? That’s what it felt like in a club me and my friends went to recently. As soon as we reached the address we had, we discovered that the place looked just like an apartment building. In order to get to the club we needed to take the elevator (clubs on higher floors are very common here). The third floor was marked insi

Why Is America Different – Part I


Walgreens, Brooklyn October 2013 I often write of how different America is from Europe in many respects; it’s time to explain those differences. I’m sure I won’t be able to fit everything into this one post, so I will definitely come back to the subject. For now, just a handful of notes – maybe you wiil add some of your own in the comments section. City Made of Blocks

Why Do We Fall in Love with NY?


Houston street, Manhattan, 12th October 2013 There’s something in this city that makes people fall in love with it. Those who only planned to stay here for a while suddenly say: “I think I could live here”. I know many cases like that (I’m one of them myself). People want to live here, even though: (1) one lives here in constant hurry, (2) one works very hard,
